Strawberry Mini Baskets


(2 Votes)


Looking for easy summer crafts to do at your daughter's birthday party? Maybe you need a fun and colorful way to hand out the take home treats? These adorable kids crafts for summer from Amanda Formaro look like strawberries and are very easy to make!

Strawberry Mini Baskets


  • Styrofoam coffee cups
  • Craft paint in red (various other shades optional)
  • Black Sharpie marker
  • Pipe cleaners, 2 for each cup (We suggest green, white, pink, red)
  • Felt: white and green
  • Yellow buttons
  • Scissors
  • White craft glue
  • Toothpick
  • Tissue paper


  1. Paint the outside of the cups and allow to dry. Depending on the paint, you may need 2-3 coats.
  2. Use a black Sharpie marker to dot on the outer seeds ("achenes").
  3. Twist two pipe cleaners together. Use a toothpick to poke a hole in the side of the cup for the handle, just below the rim. Poke through the opposite side of the cup as well. Insert the pipe cleaner about 1/2" into one of the holes from the outside of the cup, bend the end to secure. Take the other end of the pipe cleaner and insert from the outside of the cup on the other side, creating the handle.
  4. To decorate the rim, cut green felt into 2-inch wide strips. Use scissors to create a decorative edge mimicking leaves. Use white craft glue to attach to the rim, covering the handle as well.
  5. Cut simple flowers from white felt and glue a yellow button to the center. Glue the flower to the top of the pipe cleaner handle. Allow to dry.
  6. Line cups with tissue paper and fill with treats!
